One for the road

At the office this morning, Sir G. Carteret with us; and we agreed upon a letter to the Duke of York, to tell him the sad condition of this office for want of money; how men are not able to serve us more without some money; and that now the credit of the office is brought so low, that none will sell us any thing without our personal security given for the same.
All the afternoon abroad about several businesses, and at night home and to bed.

at the morning table
to serve someone
so thin
the road at night

Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Tuesday 11 June 1661.
